May 2012: Editor’s Letter

This month, we teamed up with “Gossip Girl” to create a May Birchbox filled with samples worthy of posh Upper East Siders. We’ve been big fans since season one—what’s not to love about the razor-sharp dialogue, glossy outfits and beauty looks, and OMG plot shenanigans? And then there’s the fun of seeing New York on screen—from the gorgeous shots of familiar blocks to scenes in the buzziest new restaurants, our home town is just as big a character as Chuck or Blair. In addition to GG-approved products, we have plenty of exclusive content, from an interview with executive producer Stephanie Savage to a video tutorial on Serena’s bombshell waves. You’ll also find our picks for Manhattan’s top spots to play and primp, an exhaustive mascara guide, and deskside nail art tips.
